1104.07000 – Bias or Prejudice/Motion to Disqualify
Unless the administrative law judge makes statements indicating a clear predisposition against a party, no bias or prejudice is established; where charging party asserted that the administrative law judge was subjected to an improper attempt by the witness for the respondent to bond with her by referring to the format of the documents being the same as when the administrative law judge worked at the State Personnel Board, charging party failed to establish bias or prejudice as a basis for challenging the authentication of an exhibit entered into evidence at hearing.
